I want to buy a second hand copy of CS2 to install on my windows 11 laptop. Will this work?
While yes it would work, it won't work longer than 30 days because Adobe shut down the activation
servers for cs-cs3.
Better to do the Creative Cloud Photography Plan wihich includes Photoshop and Lighroom for
around $9.99 a month or photoshop elements 2023 for around $100.
Adobe has released a version for registered Users with a universal key for CS2 that does not require an activation server.
That is only partly true. Such versions were available for download in the past.
Since a couple of years they aren't available anymore.
The internet never forgets... 😉
If you do find a working link, feel free to share it.
I haven't seen a working link in several years,
I don't think that would be a good idea since Adobe likes to have this cached page deleted.
OK. I doubt you'll find one anyway.
Thanks. Shame, I love CS2 and don't want anything more, certainly not having to rent it. Is there a similar program that I can buy outright for a reasonable cost?
